Burmester - Classic Line

The Classic Line impresses with its concentration on the essential. Apart from achieving high standards of sound quality and design Burmester put special emphasis on their ease of use. The operation of each component is simple and self-explanatory. With regard to technology and quality this product line profits substantially from the research and development work done for our Reference and Top Lines. While its appearance is more simple and compact it leaves nothing to be desired with respect to elegance and ease of use.

Product Description - 036 Power amplifier

The 036 stereo power amplifier combines a more compact design with many of the features of the more imposing Burmester power amplifiers. The structure is again symmetrical, and the device is entirely DC-coupled. An intelligent protective circuit monitors the operating status with regard to temperature, DC offset and power surges.

The Burmester 036 stereo power amplifier is a proud descendent of our internationally highly acclaimed family of power amps 909, 911 and 956. Our reference amp 909 has marked the pinnacle of audio amplifi cation since 1990. Many of the insights gained in designing the 909 have infl uenced the concept of the 036.

Like all amplifiers from Burmester the 036 is, of course, completely balanced and DC-coupled without any distorting capacitors in the signal path. Also, the 036 sports the same cool-looking heat sinks which Dieter Burmester designed for his bigger amps.

The 036 is a stereo amp. However, all Burmester stereo amps can easily be bridged into mono operation using external mono adapters. If two amps are ordered as a mono pair Burmester will bridge the amps internally at the factory free of charge. The rise time (the quickness of the amp) is the same whether it operates in stereo or mono mode. Furthermore, we offer bi-amping adapters for using a pair of 036 with speakers that require bi-amping.

All Burmester amplifiers are run through a long battery of tests to make sure each one conforms to our reference prototype. After the first computer-aided set of about 300 test measurements the units are continuously burnt-in at nominal load for 7 days. After that Burmester runs a second set of the same computer-aided tests. Only when the two results are identical the unit will be released for a listening test. If this final test meets the Burmester standards the unit will be packed and shipped. With this arduous process of testing and re-testing Burmester wants to make sure that each 036 fulfils the Burmester guarantee of reliability and musicality to their customers.

The concept of the 036 Power amplifier

The 036 offers balanced circuitry and it is entirely DC-coupled. There are no distorting capacitors in the signal path. An intelligent protection circuit outside the signal path monitors during operation for overheating, DC offset and overloading.

A special feature of the 036 is its extremely high damping factor. This high damping factor coupled with the ability to quickly deliver large amounts of current (rise time at 4 Ohms is only 1.5 S) enables the amp to effortlessly drive virtually any loudspeaker over its wide frequency response. With its mighty power supply the 036 is able to deliver high currents continuously and thus easily control speakers with low impedance values and complex loads. The frequency response is practically load-independent. Very good spatial resolution, natural musical warmth and negligible distortion characterize the sound of the 036.

The transistors of the output stages are placed on the oversized heat sinks that form the sides of the housing. The driver stages, however, are located on a separate internal heat sink. This keeps the wide temperature fluctuations of the heat sinks from shifting the working points of the amplification section.

Internal wiring of the 036 is done with 10 mm² high-purity copper cable. This ensures that the high currents of the power amplifier reach the massive bindings posts without loss. With respect to signal-carrying conductors we consciously omitted copper rails - which have become all the rage these days – to avoid unwanted micro phonic effects. For the internal connections that carry music signals we use our electrically and magnetically shielded “Burmester SILVER” cable.

The sound of the 036 Power amplifier

The 036 is widely acclaimed for its naturally warm musicality and detailed imaging. In its capability to unlock the smallest sonic detail in the world’s best speakers even at very high volumes the 036 is second to none.

Connection options for the 036 Power amplifier

  • balanced inputs (stereo/mono)
  • unbalanced inputs by using the supplied adapters (only in stereo mode)
  • 10V DC input for remote on/off switching by Burmester pre-amps and Burmester D/A converters with variable output
  • bindings posts for loudspeaker hook-up (stereo/mono)
